This is an anti-smoking commercial I came up with last week:

Camera opens outside of a downtown apartment building engulfed in flames. A couple firetrucks, an ambulance and emergency workers are visible. The camera swings to the left to show a reporter, a microphone in one hand, a cigarette in the other. He is staring intently at the blaze. The camera comes back to the building when a shout is heard, and zooms in on a rescue worker stumbling out of the building, carrying a resident of the building. The person is limp. Another rescue worker assists him in laying them on the ground. Within seconds, they pull a sheet over the person's head, looking solemn. They load the body onto a gurney and wheel it into the back of the ambulance. As they do so, one worker asks "What do you think got him?". The second responds "Smoke inhalation, probably. He was in there a while."

The camera swings back to the reporter, who has paused in lifting the cigarette back up to his mouth. His hand is frozen in space - he slowly looks down at it, and looks back up to the ambulance as the doors slam shut.



We are in the reporter's house the next morning. The camera follows him as he walks into the kitchen, sits down and opens the paper. The front page has the headline:

Smoke inhalation claims kids

His just-lit cigarette stops short of his mouth. He looks at it, then back to the paper, then back to the cigarette, and slowly puts it in the ashtray.


Black background, white letters, with narrator:

Smoke inhalation kills.

Cigarettes just prolong the inevitable.
